Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola received a late welcome gift from reigning Premier League champions Leicester City as the Citizens were stunned at the King Power stadium by a rampant Foxes side. A Jamie Vardy hat-trick coupled with a goal from Andy King helped Claudio Ranieri’s side register a 4-2 win over the title hopefuls.
Leicester City, in their characteristic fashion, sat back and absorbed pressure while hitting Guardiola’s side on the counter. Vardy opened the scoring in the 3rd minute before King doubled the lead less than 2 minutes later. Vardy added his second of the night in the 20th minute before completing the hat-trick in the 78th minute.
Aleksandar Kolarov and Nolito scored consolation goals for Guardiola’s side in the 82nd and 90th minutes respectively. Twitter didn’t hold back and was ruthless on the former Barcelona manager.
